Victoria Prentis, Member of Parliament for North Oxfordshire, spent Friday morning at school at Bicester Community College, briefly attending lessons including Maths, Art and English.

 

Victoria visited Head Teacher Tony Rushworth and a number of his staff, to speak in more detail about the school’s future plans and ever improving standards. She was then given a tour of the school with staff and Head Boy Mj Oosthuizen.

 

Victoria said “I was so happy that one of my first of many visits as MP for North Oxfordshire was to a greatly improved school.  I was very impressed with the steps Bicester Community College have taken to offer the best opportunities for students.  I am excited for their future, and know staff have a clear vision of aspiration for the young people studying there.”

 

Mr Rushworth commented: “We were pleased to welcome Victoria to our school and to be able to demonstrate the pride and commitment of our staff and students.

 

“This is an exciting point in the school’s development, as we prepare to re-launch as The Bicester School, an academy sponsored by Activate Learning, in September.

 

“Victoria recognised the significant improvements which have already been delivered and we look forward to building on these for the further benefit of pupils and the local community.”
